The new concept is intended to drive cross shopping among other categories.

J.C. Penney says it will begin implementing a “center core layout” in more than one-third of its stores this spring that will turn its areas of fashion jewelry, accessories, footwear and handbags “into a vibrant shopping environment that complements Sephora inside J.C. Penney and the Fine Jewelry Store,” Chain Store Age magazine reports. The article says that this new layout was piloted in stores last year to “promote greater cross shopping” in the aforementioned areas. The test drive was a success, so the retailer is rolling out the concept on a larger scale. “As we continue to expand our center core concept to more stores, customers will discover compelling displays that bring accessories to life in a meaningful and dynamic way,” Jodie Johnson, J.C. Penney’s senior VP of footwear and handbags, told the magazine.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
